Arthur Waser Foundation:
Education, Social, Culture

The Arthur Waser Foundation is a non-profit, private foundation under Swiss law based in Lucerne. It was founded in 2000 by Arthur Waser and established in his will as his future sole heir. It is politically and denominationally independent.

The Arthur Waser Foundation uses its funds in two priority regions and three thematic areas. In the four African countries Tanzania, Ghana, Ethiopia and soon also Angola, the foundation pursues an education strategy in close cooperation with African partner organizations, especially congregations. In Switzerland, the foundation supports institutions and projects related to the central Swiss cantons of Lucerne, Schwyz, Uri, Obwalden and Nidwalden in the fields of arts & culture and social affairs.
